The Smartmax Lighthouse set was very much loved by my son. The pieces are chunky making it very easy for him to grip. The magnets within each piece have a great design because he only has to hold two pieces together and they attract, so it in a way shows him how to build and what to do. Within a few minutes he was well away building towers and chains. Two pieces contain LED lights, battery operated, which are a great added feature to this product. He keeps going back to this toy so it's defibitely a hit. However I think the price tag at £34.99 is too steep. If it's the pieces that light up that push the price up, remove these. Although they are great, for my son, they are not needed. He enjoys this product just as much, with or without these.
The SmartMax Lighthouse certainly entertains my children for a good amount of time, allowing me to get on with housework! As a magnetic toy, it’s easy to put away in one piece! However, one thing I had problems with was my lovely children kept hiding the balls! Not so fun trying to find them all!
The SmartMax Lighthouse is a brilliant toy, suitable for all ages. It encourages creativity and imagination, and the possibilities with this magnetic toy are endless. Both my 1, 2 & 8 year olds all enjoyed playing with this toy. The pieces are durable and built to last, they have withstood lots of rough play from my boisterous toddlers! The shapes and colours are both eye catching and help with learning for younger users. Two of the pieces are light up, which fascinated my children. All in all, it is a toy worth buying. We'd definitely buy more sets in future.
Three Little Piggies is a multi-level logic game while the SmartMax Lighthouse is a pre-school magnetic construction range boasting light-up flashing LED bars.
